I think a 15/9 lens might pair well with it.

The good news for you is that Pentax will likely release a 70-200 lens that would be just as good as the tamron in the near future. The 24-70 probably wont be far behind. I suspect that the new 70-200 will satisfy your need for speed.
Thanks for the heads up. I am in no hurry to jump ship. I think 2015 is the year of many surprises. Hopefully Pentax/Ricoh will have a few for us. CES is less than 3 weeks away followed by WPPI in February and NAB in early April. I think most players are going to show their hands by NAB. Let's wait and see. I am going to all three shows and eagerly waiting for the surprises.

Last year, Ricoh teased us with the 645Z and the 28-45. Both of them with no markings and under glass at the WPPI show. Theta was shown at CES. Pentax never shows up to NAB. I guess because of the video handicap. But then again who knows what will happen by April.

If they release a FF north of 36MP with 4K video capability in a K3 class rugged body, then they will be the talk of all three shows. A mirrorless camera with the same specs will be nice too. Come on Pentax Let's go!!

I'm actually impressed. It took 16 pages before the subject of National Socialists and Bacon were mentioned in a FF thread. This might be a record.

Ricoh, which has given us the GXR concept, the Theta, . . . ?
.
This one needs no tickling to start laughing about. GXR and Theta are both totally whacked out products with minimal, niche appeal. Why? Because of the deliberate design quirk applied to them. Lensor is NOT a smart idea in rapidly changing sensor tech, and one trick 360 degree camera is well, a dog that knows how to sit, and that's about it.
Anyone in grade 8 could design such idiosyncratic cameras, but it takes a bit more than that to think about a concept that is NOT so limited and obscure.
When looking at Ricoh's history of "innovation" it reminds me of crazy story-lines of the early Sci-Fi movies: totally implausible, childish, and ready for bin as soon as one enrols grade 9.

Ricoh won't have much of a presence at any of those shows. If anything big is announced in February it will be at CP+ in Tokyo.

"Anyone who knows their way around a bacon sandwich will surely know their way around a Pentax camera" might provoke an interesting cultural exchange if posed as a question at the next PF interview with a spokesman from Ricoh Japan.

Don't mess with bacon!

I can take all the gossip and jokes abbout Pentax, but not about bacon. Dare to use "bacon" and gossip in a single sentence, its like running along JFK airport screaming: "bomb.... bomb!!!!" and expect not to take the heat coming to you.

You've been warned!

But will they have a booth? In the past it's always been meeting space only.

According to CES's floor plan and exhibitor list, Ricoh is having TWO spaces. I don't know the location of such spaces, but their corresponding booth numbers are neither consecutive or "close" which means they are having two different product lines or exhibition "experiences" planned.

In case you are wondering, both spaces are reserved for Ricoh Imaging Americas.

How many hotel rooms are reserved for "all of the US Ricoh reps"?

They had a booth at last years show too. They didn't announce anything, just showcased the K-3, K-5 IIS, K-50, K-500, Q7, Ricoh GR, MX-1, and WG-3. The big announcement, what became the 645Z, was at CP+ a month later.

PENTAX - Ricoh Imaging Showcases Enticing Lineup at 2014 International CES, Presents Dealers with Profitable Partnerships

I'm pretty sure there were 2 spaces last year. 1 to show the products and 1 for presenting the "Profitable Partnerships".

I think that went something like this...
